Dallas defensive end Randy Gregory has played in just 38 games over six seasons since the Cowboys selected him in the second round of the 2015 NFL draft, as repeated suspensions for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy have caused him to miss more games than he has played. But Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is still a believer in Gregory.

“Randy, I’ve been really impressed by the way he has stayed the course with legitimate life challenges,” Jones said. “He addresses them exemplarily. He has to fight the kinds of things that make those challenges for people. He has to fight that. I’m seeing him take the logic and the mentality of using what he’s been through there, and I’m seeing him bring it over to his game and bring it over to being the professional he potentially might have the chance to be.”

Jones thinks the 28-year-old Gregory may actually be in better shape because he has missed so much time.

“He’s got a lot of tread left on his tire. He really hasn’t, if you think about it, had a lot of wear and tear relative to as many years as he’s now been with the Cowboys,” Jones said.

  1. This is the kind of “Leader” Jerry is counting on to being home another SB. What could possibly go wrong?

  2. Playing 6 games a year for 6 years is called being unreliable. If you have an owner who justifies employing that person, that owner is unreliable. You don’t win Super Bowls employing unreliable people, and you don’t win Super Bowls by being an unreliable owner. It really is that simple.

  3. This is the same guy who let Jimmy Johnson go. Great judge of character, integrity, talent. Not

  4. Also Jerry Jones…. Randy has just been suspended for the 4th time? Extend that guy’s contract!

  5. When he is up in the booth with headset on can he ask the coach why Randy got another penalty that cost them the game again.

  6. If every American that smoked weed was not allowed to go to work, our country would come to a grinding halt. And if we had back every dollar spent of policing, incarceration, court costs, etc., we’d all be paying lower taxes. But we love paying higher taxes, right? Yet there’s a liquor store on every corner.
